I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Aruba Networks.

Interview Details – Scheduling of interviews wasn't very organized. The hiring managers would call me at random times, or not call at all. There wasn't too many difficult questions, most of those I talked with just asked about my work experience and rambled about the company. Had 3-4 phone interviews spanning across a 3 week period and at the end was told there wasn't enough in the budget for the intern role.

First it started with the basic understanding of the role and function then the collaboration aspect. Then the second talked about the product knowledge, product launch understanding, and cultural fit. The third explored more of personality trait, aspiration, and fulfillment. Fourth, exploring more of the underlying reason conducting such program/activities related to product marketing roles (what you did, Why you did it, and How you did it).
